Creation (5)

16 February 2021
‘Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these?’

When we look at the sky and try to imagine how far space goes on for, it’s almost impossible to process. The thought of how big our universe is can make us feel incredibly tiny and insignificant. And when we’re feeling insignificant, our prayer requests can sometimes feel the same. If God, with His infinite power, created the entire universe, how could He possibly be concerned about our relatively small concerns, like good exam results, or release from nerves about a job interview, or hoping that the car will pass its MOT? Isaiah 40:26 says: ‘Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing’ (NIV). God knows each of the stars individually, and He would notice if one of them didn’t appear. Matthew 10:29 and Luke 12:6 both talk about God being concerned with the little sparrows. He doesn't forget a single one. They’re all part of His creation, and He’s concerned about every tiny corner of it. So we can be sure He’s also concerned about us. Even if we’re feeling insignificant, we’re not insignificant to Him, and that means our prayers, worries, concerns and joys are all important to Him. He’s not a distant God – He’s accessible and available to listen to us if we take time to pray and invite Him into our lives, and He’s ready to use His power to help us and strengthen us as we face our daily lives.

What Now?
Put some food out for the birds, and spend some time watching them as they come to feed. As you’re watching, give thanks to God for caring about the little things in His creation and in your life.
